The progressive far left wing of the Democratic Party is attacking moderates for a lack of ideological purity. This could prove unfortunate, because moderate candidates have the best chance of winning swing districts and independent voters who are fed up with President Donald Trump.

Taste like chicken.

Still waiting for the great unmasking, Comrade Zerocock. I DARE YOU to tell the world who you claim to know I am. You won't because you can't. Are you a total chickenshiit or just a liar.

Unfettered liberalism is self-defeating, as it's not grounded in reality. Look at all the examples in history of socialist experiments. Not one has worked. They end in utter catastrophe. Humans can't possibly achieve universal equality and fairness.

D-Bag, you should look to the French revolution for a preview of what's to come from unfettered capitalism and income inequality.

DMoney

Compared to what we've seen from socialist experiments, C-bag, I'll take my chances.

Enjoy the guillotine!

Would rather have my head cut off than starve to death.

This is exactly what Socialists do, eat yours and theirs and then it’s gone, you end up with nothing. If it’s not their way, it can not be any way. The left has no chance of winning at all, they should not even be in America’s game, they are merely a noisy, obnoxious distraction, kind of like an unruly teen who seems to know everything.

Mo' Money Scott Walker

No chance of winning what?

new2Lax

Anything, anytime anywhere. Pick something.

"No chance of winning" even though the left represents the MAJORITY of voters in the country. Newt, it is the republicans who have had to gerrymander and suppress voters and lie in order to maintain their illegitimate grip on power. Yet you refuse to call out their un-democratic means of retaining power. That speaks volumes.

DMoney

This country won't work and won't remain a Union if the populations of a couple states determine the leadership and direction. I don't care how many millions of Californians vote Democrat. Just like you don't care how many Floridians vote Republican. This country is not run on mob rule. It's designed to give every state and it's people a degree of participation. Get that through your thick head. Read the Constitution. Read notes and quotes from the founders. This isn't a socialist democracy. It just ain't.

capedcrusader

Isn't.

Cassandra2

Not run on mob role? The MINORITY party has manipulated itself victories and stacked the courts to ensure it can't be voted out. D-Bag, do you actually believe in democracy or will you finally come out and admit that you enjoy a dictatorship of the minority?

DMoney

If by "minority" you mean the entire country minus the horrid state of California, that would make me the believer in democracy (specifically, our form of democracy, a constitutional republic).

Cassandra2

Look at the numbers, D-Bag. The MAJORITY of voters in the country voted for Democrats across the board. In the presidential election , the Senate and the House, far more votes were cast for Democrats. republicans have managed to gerrymander and voter suppress their way into an illegitimate grip on power. And you praise that. Pathetic.

capedcrusader

No chance? Clinton beat you twice and so did Obama. Hillary beat Trumps azzz in the popular vote too. First man to lose to a girl. Without the EC YOU don't stand a chance
